Wish Jeff Goldblum a happy birthday. Then watch him play a freak in his first role

Jeff Goldblum turns 62 today, so it’s worth looking back at his first role.

That role? A menacing freak in the 1974 movie Death Wish. The vigilante movie didn’t give him a large part, but when Goldblum and some friends were cast in the movie it gave the young actor his big break. Goldblum wasn’t the only star in the thriller, either—a young Denzel Washington also stole a scene.
